Form and preparation of manuscripts
The manuscript should be submitted in
triplicate; one of the copies will contain the original figures,
carefully designed. Once the manuscript is accepted, the final text
should be delivered in a diskette, including tables and figures or
diagrams in Word or Excel. The scientific names and the Latin locutions
will be the only ones to be underlined or in italics. The first time an
agency is cited, the full scientific name should be written (gender,
species and author), and subsequently only the initial of the generic
name will be cited.
The measures should be stated in units of the metric system; if necessary add measures in other systems; the corresponding abbreviations should be explained in the text. Decimals with comma, not period (example: 0.5)

If there are several works of an author in a single year, they should be cited with a letter in sequence together with the year (example: Castro, 1952). When there are more than two authors, the Latin words et al in italics will be cited after the first author. (1981).
The bibliography will include all and only the references cited in the text, placing in alphabetical order the surname of the first author, without a number preceding it. Examples: Tarazona, J. 1984. Modificaciones de la infauna bentónica con deficiencia de oxígeno, durante El Niño 1982-3. Rev. Com. Per. Pacífico Sur, (15): 223-238. Hoyos, L.; J. Tarazona; B. Siga y V. Chiong, 1985.

The drawings, diagrams, and figures should be presented in Canson paper and in Chinese ink, size A4, placed on a white cardboard and with letters and symbols of appropriate size, that permit its reduction without losing clarity. Figures in computers are accepted, but only in high quality (scanned, high resolution, preferably laser printer or equivalent). The figures created in Excel or Word will be included in the diskette to be delivered when the work has been accepted.
The drawings should have a scale so that they can be increased. Only the negatives of photographs in black and white, with wide spectrum of tones and good contrast, placed in a white A4 cardboard will be accepted. The cost for photographs in color should be assumed by the author.
Figures, tables will be listed in correlative order with Arabic numbers. Each table should take a descriptive title in the upper part; photographs will be considered figures for numbering.
The text should contain: Title, title in English, name of the authors, institution of the authors, address of the author to which the correspondence should be directed, summary, key words (maximum of 5), abstract, key words, introduction, material and methods, results, discussion and conclusions, thanks and cited literature. The text should include 25 lines per sheet and 60 characters by line (Courier, 12 points, double space) in bond A4 paper, with a maximum of 20 pages including tables and illustrations.
